LeBron James breaks his social media silence after NBA Finals loss

LeBron James Gives Back to Akron Community

As he does every postseason, LeBron James took a hiatus from Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and the rest of his cell phone these last few months. (Well, except for a brief congratulations to Chris Paul from his wife's phone in May.)

After losing out in six games to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, the Internet has been patiently awaiting on the King to see just how he'd react to his second straight Finals loss, and the fourth of his career.

On Tuesday, James chose Facebook to address the loss, and more importantly, addressing his kids as motivation. He signed off with a promise to get even better in the years to come.

It hurt to lose. I've been in a funk lately, but this... this is what motivates me to do what I do. How can I ever be down...

Technically, LeBron can leave the Cavaliers in free agency this summer after opting out of his contract. But that's never been even remotely expected, and this post -- addressing his return home in the present tense and saying "I'm not satisfied" -- basically sets his Cavs tenure in stone.

So unlike last season, we probably won't see any subliminal hints regarding free agency.
